The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is officially coming Canada – you would think that parent-company Bell wanted to be first to announce the news, but Virgin Mobile has broken the news by stating they will release the anticipated Galaxy Nexus with Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich “early December”. The press release also stated that “Google lovers can pre-register starting today!”,
but nothing has shown up on their site yet… it’s now live here. No word yet on price points.
“The new Galaxy Nexus™ will be available from Virgin Mobile when it arrives in Canada in early December. Plus, only Virgin Mobile Members can get this smartphone with a no-term contract on the Virgin Mobile SuperTab™. Whether it’s with talk and text plans or the hottest data plans, Galaxy Nexus™ can be hooked up to Virgin Mobile’s full range of plans – just pick the Virgin Mobile SuperTab™ amount and plan that’s perfect for you!
“Samsung’s ongoing collaboration with Google has resulted in a next generation smartphone that has both superior functionality and a stunning user-experience,” said Paul Brannen, Vice President, Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics Canada. “The large, responsive HD SuperAMOLED screen offers users full 720p video playback on the device, and accommodates the new Android 4.0 user interface that is based on soft keys.”
